Mukaikaze ni Utarenagara (向かい風に打たれながら)

I really liked that she tried something more powerful in the form of rock sound. She is trying this since her last single, and I don’t mind, but the main problem can be found at how she uses her vocals in these types of songs. This one at least is enjoyable thanks to the energy of the guitars and Minorin sounds cool at the chorus, but the verses are also cool in its way. I like how it is so different from her other songs (although it shares a little of similarity with NO LINE) and shows that she can rock and works even better than FOOL THE WORLD. For me this was a really good song although I’m not liking that much that all her singles are tie-ins.


Then this happened, the sound made me understand this was going to be one of those songs with her high pitch vocals, it reminds me to some of those from NEO FANTASIA (the crappy ones) and obviously I’m not liking it as you should expect. The song carries a fantasy like style in the arrangement and I like that even if the instruments are common make this variation of sound (I remembered that it sounds like TOON-GO-ROUND). these are the types of songs I know she makes a lot, but I’m hoping she tries to do less of them and bring some amazing songs in the future.

Is it worth listening? Only the A-side

The single surprised me with another rock song for the A-side which was really good but I want her to have a more synthy song again just like before. But then B-side ruined the single with that high pitch voice and I didn’t like it, but as always she releases this type of songs all the time so I’m used to it, but she should change that aspect or return to an era similar to her first ones.
